Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Recipe for a Drizzly Morning

Take a drizzly Sunday morning.  Add flannel pajamas, fuzzy slippers, flaky scones, raspberry jam, and a pot of Earl Grey tea...   perfect.

Scottish Scones

1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1. tsp. sugar
1/4 cup butter, cut into small chunks
Milk and sugar for topping

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Combine milk and egg.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in butter until
mixture looks like a course meal. Mix quickly with a fork until dough clings together. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead 8-10 times, lightly.
Roll 1/2" thick into  a round shape. Cut into pie shaped wedges. Brush top with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes.
Serve warm with butter and jam.
